Not to mention Dan Rathergate, CNN's skyhook scandal,exploding pickups and CNN's admission that it didn't report news from Iraq during Hussein's reign to protect their access. I'm sure there are tons more examples.

The MSM is laughing their arses off at conservatives as they do every minute of everyday for the last 40 years.

They COULD CARE LESS IF WE DON'T BELIEVE THEM.

They are not biased.

They are political orgs, running a 24/7 political campaign, with political hacks posing a journalists.

And they know that we know.

And they also know that their power is much more immense than ours.

So they beat us everyday, with every storyline they invent.

It makes me wonder if the alphabet networks haven't been producing fake news ever since they realized the power of television.

What I wonder is why they're still either a) trying to get away with it, or b) continuing with sloppy habits that get them into trouble. After what happened to Rather, it astounds me that Reuters let that Photoshopped photo get through. A six-year-old could see that it had been altered, and yet they either didn't review it, or ran it despite the obviousness of the fakery.

I disagree. We're shredding their credibility and they're upset about it in a big way, Mitchell's reaction being one indication. Every time one of their scams gets exposed, it adds to the growing feeling that what they're telling the public isn't accurate or possibly even is false.
